Canada, New York, and Mali all are making the market news cycle. Ebola and terrorism, or, rather, what many are thinking is terrorism, but what just me a local nutcase.   The market did react when the news of the Canadian parliament shooting came across the wire on Wednesday and it reacted this morning to the news that both New York and Mali had their firs Ebola victims. To some degree, all...

Options 101: How To Construct A Directional Play

Options 101: How To Construct A Directional Play

When I identify an opportunity for a directional play, how do I decide: a) what type of trade I want to do and b) what strikes do I want to use?  Typically, with a directional play, I look for some sort of vertical.  This lowers my cost basis (granted it caps my potential profit).  But most importantly, I attempt to "target" a specific strike.  I do this by "triangulating" a few...

Skew: Did Option Players Get The Sell-Off Right This Time?

If you want to figure out the next move the markets will make, I have a secret to tell you about. Option traders have a trick that most investors and traders have never heard of, let alone understand. It is a little thing called skew, which is a real time view of where money is being bet. (In technical terms, skew is "the risk associated with an increase in the probability of outlier...

More of the Same But Different?

Let’s start today by going back to yesterday, another in a series of volatile days. I think the market took my advice a bit too seriously, as all the major indices dropped with gusto. I am not sure why, but it seems the buyers simply ran out of gas. Stocks took on some water today, but it can't be a complete surprise. I think it was yesterday we pointed out the S&P 500 had rallied more...

Define Risk On Crude Oil Play With Options

The markets have calmed down a bit from last week, but there is still a cloud of uncertainty hanging overhead. The equity markets have done quite a job of getting back most of the recent sell off. Last week the S&P 500 had a nearly 120 point range from Monday to Thursday, with a 50 point range on Thursday alone. The market closed up 30 points from the low on Thursday, which may have...

Remember Our Lessons Already Learned

Ahhhh …. Life is normal again, and it feels right. In today’s sense of normalcy, a learned lesson or two in life resides. One of those is familiar to me from repetition in my childhood and the other I am just starting to learn through repetition. Yesterday, I just “relearned” the latter. My computer is working. Yup, the same one I gave up on yesterday is the same one I fixed yesterday. I...

Trading Psychology: Stay Calm When The Fastballs Fly

Trading Psychology: Stay Calm When The Fastballs Fly

A client of mine sent me a bio yesterday on Rod Dedeaux, who was the baseball coach for USC for 45 seasons. Dedeaux was a legendary leader, chalking up more national titles and wins (1332) than any other coach of his day. 200 of his players went on to play professional ball. Dedeaux neither lost his temper nor disrespected or denigrated anyone. He cultivated the ability to befriend,...

For Phase I of Markets re-design, we are introducing simple OHLC bar charts with a volume histogram.

To adjust the period and scale of the chart, use the "slider" bar which appears underneath the Volume histogram frame. If the slider frame is not appearing, you may need to adjust the 'Zoom' view of your internet browser or adjust your screen resolution to a lower resolution.

By dragging the start and end arrows of the slider bar to the left and right, you can easily adjust the date range.

Features planned for Phase II will include a selection of chart types and a technical indicator library with the ability to define a custom date range for the chart data.
